Weekend Sewing drawstring bag

I meant to make a few of these drawstring bags from Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing book before the baby was born. I've cut the material out, but have only made 1 so far. They are so quick to make though. I think it only took me 5 minutes to do. At first glance I thought the pattern was justa a page filler, but having tried to make one a few weeks ago without refering to a pattern or instructions, I had made a mess of the drawstring closure at the top. It was good to have a pattern to follow from the book and to not have to think about it. Trying to live in a plastic bag-less house as much as possible, I know I'll use these wee bags lots and lots. Keeping baby socks etc etc etc in. I think I'll make bags like these out of those test-muslins of shirt patterns etc that I don't need any more.
